    The sub has 2 sets of terminals.

    Wire the +'s on the sub on the + to the 'bridged' amp. Do the same for the -'s.
    Done, 2 ohms all around.

    im having a little trouble understanding what your saying. it does have two sets of posts on the sub itself but it only has one thing on the back of the box where the wire runs to the amp. Also for clarification what do u mean by the term bridged amp. just need som clarification thanks.

    Is the box wired as 2 ohm mono. If yes, you don't have to do any real wiring.

    A bridged amp is an amp that only has 1 output, or feeds a single speaker.
